How to Split PDF by Text

Divide PDF into smaller pieces based on text and separate PDF files that have similar layouts but different contents.

1. Upload your files

You can be assured that your files are safely uploaded over an encrypted connection. The files will permanently be deleted after processing.

  • To upload your files from your computer, click “Upload PDF File” and select the files you want to edit or drag and drop the files to the page.
  • To upload files from Dropbox, Google Drive or from a website where your files are located, expand the “Upload PDF File” drop-down list and select your files.

2. Indicate Split Area

Extract separate documents when specific text changes from page to page. To do this, click and drag to select the text that is different per split document.

You may also use the Text box to indicate the split rule by encoding the specific keyword on the "Text Should Start With" textbox.

Customize your PDF’s file name before downloading by clicking “More Options” and encoding the file name on the "Customize Result Name" text box.
